Agency and the foundations of ethics : Nietzschean constitutivism

Author: Paul Katsafanas
Publisher: Oxford : Oxford University Press, 2013.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
Paul Katsafanas explores how we can justify normative claims such as 'murder is wrong'. He defends an original account of constitutivism - the view that we do so by showing that agents become committed to them in virtue of acting - and resolves philosophical puzzles about the metaphysics, epistemology, and practical grip of normative claims.
